Abstract:

This document describes a research plan which will lead to the development of a model that relates speech communication to performance. The experiments to be conducted answer questions about the effect of spoken message set complexity on operational performance. A message set has been defined as the set of all possible response-triggering messages within the boundaries imposed by the situation or setting. First-year and long-term objectives are presented. An experimental paradigm, independent and dependent variables, subject populations, and other details of the experiment are described. Operational definitions of the independent variables are presented. Additionally, a tentative research plan for continued studies is proposed.
